Amazon's trying to steal Steam's thunder with a bunch of PC download sales

Tread lightly, Amazon. You're setting up shop in a part of town that's run by Sticky Fingers Newell and his crew. That's not just bad for business; that's bad for your kneecaps. But, here are all your wares anyway -- PC downl...

Wallet Busters: PC games winter sales arrive in force photo
Wallet Busters: PC games winter sales arrive in force
by Dealzon

For those PC gamers who aren't yet broke from all the holiday shopping, this week Steam, GMG, GameStop, and heck -- even Uplay, launched PC games winter sales to tug at your wallet.

Steam's winter sale went live Thursday at the usual 10:00 AM time slot, filled with some nice surprise such as the appearance of Microsoft Flight Simulator X Steam Edition. Over at GMG, they're attempting to price match Steam and tossing in a coupon for an additional 20% off for good measure.

GameStop's winter sale, while not as large as others, does have EA titles such as Battlefield 4 and C&C Ultimate Collection for only five bucks. Meanwhile, everyone's favorite DRM Uplay has its catalog on sale too: the excellent Valiant Hearts and Child of Light are only $6 a piece. Heck, even Steam keys of Stick of Truth are available at $13.

If you're looking for a last-minute gift on a console system, a few retailers are having some decent sales. For instance, the Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity Bundle is $349.99 at Target with a bonus $70 Gift Card today while the 32GB Wii U Deluxe clocks in at $249.99. Not bad.

Game deals brought to by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: Sales from certain retailers help support Destructoid.

The Steam Holiday Sale is on: Ground Zeroes, Dark Souls II, and more

For some of us, the year-end Steam Holiday  Sale is the one that matters. It's where I tend to buy most of my PC games for the year, which is a nasty habit considering how few of them end up in my library unplayed and un...

Amazon doesn't take the weekend off because videogame deals don't stop

[Update: Amazon's discounted Assassin's Creed Unity down to $29.99 for Monday only. That's half off a game that's days more than a month old. Calls for a quick bump, in my opinion. All these other videogame deals from th...

Microsoft brings back Black Friday Xbox One bundles with extra free game

It's the return of the bundle with the game name that can't be spoken. (We're talking about Assassin's Creed Unity -- hmm, wait a sec...) With Christmas right around the corner and the holiday sale volume still relatively high, Microsoft Store is running a "12 Days of Deals" Holiday promotion. For today only, it brought back three of its Black Friday Xbox One bundles.

Sure, I'll take a free copy of SimCity 2000 on Origin
by Jordan Devore

I never thought I'd have this many games attached to my Origin account, but here we are with yet another On the House offer from Electronic Arts I might as well claim. You know, just to have.

SimCity 2000 is free (read: free to keep, not free to play for a limited time) so get on that.

I think the last time I seriously played this was in, gosh, middle school? It's been a while.

I don't know what 'Green Monday' is, but Amazon has videogame deals for it

I'm not sure why we need to keep designating official titles for different days to spur consumerism around the holidays. I mean, people need (and want) to buy stuff; they'll spend money regardless. Black Friday's fine. It's b...
